Humans can fly.

    Justin, sitting here with my 7 yr. old watching that and she says “that’s awesome – I want to do that!” Thanks.

  2. Aaron Says:

    I want to do that! ;)

    hm. Misparsed as *wingnut* base jumping….

    <emily-litella>Nevermind</>

    But otherwise, this looks like a lot of fun assuming one could work up the guts to jump off a cliff like that.

    This is a “life affirming” activity if I ever seen one. The prospect of slamming into a rock face first at 100 MPH is blood warming.

  5. Allan Hughes Says:

    I get the willies just watching this.

    The most impressive part of this is the part unseen: the person doing much of the same but also holding a camera; all these amazing shots of this or other extreme “sports” requires someone along for the ride that is probably just as good but can also do it while holding a camera.

    Hes probably got a head unit on Allan, so that his hands and arms can be outstretched to continue gliding.
